Background

A unique and incomparable taste with rich and structured body, this product was created by Antonio Benedetto Carpano, the inventor of the Vermouth Category back in 1786 in Turin. Antica Formula still now maintains the authentic and one of a kind recipe mainly because of the passion and ability of Fratelli Branca Distillerie in maintaining unaltered throughout time the product that is unique for its unique bouquet, especially given by the vanilla scent. This “nectar of the gods” is characterized in the taste and aroma made from an selected infusion of mountain herbs and spices, one of which is saffron.

Tasting Notes

Antica Formula is produced in limited quantities and packaged in prestigious blown glass bottles. Sealed with a cork, the bottle is enclosed in a prestigious packaging. The label is the reproduction of the original 1786 one.

From its amaranth and brilliant color with highlights of amber, to the nose a bouquet of vanilla emerges which comes together with notes of spices, citrus and dried fruits like raisins and cloves. To the palate a rich vanilla taste emerges, with hints of bitter orange, dates, cocoa beans, cherries and saffron.

Colour: light brown with an amber hue. – Nose: bouquet of vanilla with spicy, citrusy and dried fruit notes of almond, raisins and cloves. – Palate: well-rounded, rich vanilla taste that picks up the aromas from the nose. Combines well with the bitter orange, dates, cocoa beans and saffron flavours.

Ideal to drink on ice and an orange peel, as an aperitif or after dinner. It’s the main ingredient in cocktails such as Negroni, Americano or Hanky Panky, offered in the most exclusive restaurants and bars in Italy and worldwide.
